Attestation signing a kernel service (non PnP) driver

ie no inf file. How do you submit it for signing? Sysdev just pointed me back to the stock documentation, which says submit the sys and inf file in a cab file, ie, useless, as always. So how does one submit it? Thanks in advance for any help on this.

You can create an inf file even though you don't use it.

OK, I thought that was probably the way to do it. So I guess this results in a signed cat file rather than signing the sys file itself. Shame sysdev cant sign sys file on its own without needing an inf file. Thanks Bill

>So I guess this results in a >signed cat file rather than signing the sys file itself. BOTH get signed -- the CAT and the SYS file. >Shame sysdev cant sign sys file on its own >without needing an inf file. Why? Then you'd just need to create some OTHER type of infrastructure file that describes the file to be signed. An INF file is already well know and semi-universal. Note that you CAN use an INF file to install a non-PnP driver: <https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/ifs/creating-an-inf-fi le-for-a-file-system-filter-driver> or see the "nonPNP" sample driver that is/was in the WDK.

Wrong.  The attestation signing creates a brand new CAT file and signs it, but it also signs every executable file in your package. -- Tim Roberts, xxxxx@probo.com Providenza & Boekelheide, Inc.
